New Lude...paint top black? (pics)

As you can see the whole top part of the paint is burnt, now I could just spray paint it milano red but I want to do something different, should I paint it gloss black??

Does anyone have any pictures of a prelude with a different color top than the rest of the car?

Where can I buy clear coat? Autozone and Advanced Auto didn't have clear coat (only found rim clear coat)

Re: New Lude...paint top black? (pics)

I'm at the same point. Burned faded paint mainly on the roof and trunk. Cf is just too much money and an in law and myself will do the paint ącouple bills. (He's good too!!). I wanna delete the spoiler and paint inside the headlights on the hood. Paint/powder coat the wheels to match. I was thinkin like a satin black. So there was still a little sheen to it and doesn't act like sand paper when you wash it. I was gonna just pop up pics when done but may as well get some opinions so I don't pull a dipshyt move.

Wachu think?
